Set in the rolling hills of Frederick County, our tasting room combines two things that are a must for a special event today: aesthetic beauty and environmentally-friendly practices. The tasting room, which can accommodate 100 people (up to 250 with addition of tent), features sweeping views of the vineyards and was built using a multitude of materials grown or gathered on the farm, including wood, stone, straw, and clay.
The interior of our tasting room includes a hand-crafted bar, an inviting fireplace, one-of-a-kind curly maple tables, a caterer-ready kitchen, ADA-compliant bathrooms, and 1150 square feet of floor space. The site also features a covered breezeway of 430 square feet which can be enclosed, to create a cozy sunroom on bright winter days. The facility also features a delightful covered porch furnished with rocking chairs. The exterior of the tasting room includes a living roof, solar paneling, and easily accessible parking.
Perfect for an intimate or small-sized event, Black Ankle Vineyards’ tasting room is an exceptional venue that will create a memorable occasion for those with discerning tastes.

Not only is Black Ankle a gorgeous setting for a wedding, and not only is the wine amazing (this coming from a hardcore Napa Valley enthusiast), but the staff is incredible to work with and makes the experience of planning a wedding a stress-free as it could possibly be. I was never once worried about how the day was going to go, and they took care of everything perfectly. I am looking forward to going for tastings and reminiscing about our perfect day! Even if you decide not to have a wedding here, at least go and do a tasting! It's sooooo pretty and a great place to bring a picnic lunch and hang out with friends while sipping delicious wine and waiting for the cows to come greet you :-)Sent on 06/02/2013

Black Ankle is my most favorite spot to relax on a Friday night, so we didn't even consider another venue when planning our wedding. Melissa and the other staff are so friendly, accomodating, laid-back and professional. We are so thankful for all of them! My day/evening went off without a hitch and we were having a surprise wedding! We had a winter wedding, so most people were indoors the entire time, but Black Ankle still fired up the bonfires which many guests enjoyed and added a more initimate feel to the wedding. I cannot say enough good things about Black Ankle to do them justice!Sent on 01/07/2011

Melissa is fantastic to work with. She was ready to accomodate me in all respects and is extremely friendly. Black Ankle was a gorgeous place to get married. It was romantic, beautiful, and had excellent wine, the best in Maryland in my opinion. If you are looking for something different for a small intimate wedding, it is an ideal location.Sent on 11/02/2010
